I have loved this table from Pottery Barn for a very long time:
It is beautiful. It is also $499 which is way out of my price range. So when I came across a sad $10 table at Salvation Army, I knew I had to have it. Here's what it looked like when I brought it home:

And then 2 coats of Valspar Lincoln Cottage Black (leftover from this project - $0. Score.). This is what it looks like now:
I am in love with this table. I actually like it more than the Pottery Barn version. And since I saved $490, I think a date night with my husband is in order.
BTW, the little votive holder on the left is from Salvation Army too - $1. So cute.
